Computational Semantics with Functional Programming by van Eijck J., Unger C.

By van Eijck J., Unger C.

Computational semantics is the paintings and technology of computing which means in common language. The which means of a sentence is derived from the meanings of the person phrases in it, and this procedure will be made so targeted that it may be applied on a working laptop or computer. Designed for college students of linguistics, computing device technological know-how, good judgment and philosophy, this finished textual content indicates easy methods to compute that means utilizing the sensible programming language Haskell. It bargains with either denotational that means (where which means comes from figuring out the stipulations of fact in situations), and operational which means (where that means is an guide for acting cognitive action). together with a dialogue of contemporary advancements in common sense, it will likely be worthwhile to linguistics scholars desirous to follow common sense to their reviews, good judgment scholars wishing to benefit how their topic will be utilized to linguistics, and sensible programmers drawn to typical language processing as a brand new software quarter.

Functional Programming in Scala (draft version)

Sensible programming (FP) is a programming variety emphasizing capabilities that go back constant and predictable effects despite a program's kingdom. hence, sensible code is less complicated to check and reuse, easier to parallelize, and no more at risk of insects. Scala is an rising JVM language that provides powerful aid for FP.

Rewriting functional expressions is a form of simplification where part of an expression is replaced by something simpler, until we arrive at an expression that cannot be simplified (or: reduced) any further. This rewriting corresponds to the computation of a function. For example, the function converting Celsius to Fahrenheit applied to the input 37 is the expression 37 × 95 + 32. 6, according to the rewriting rules for multiplication. 6, in accordance with the rewriting rules for addition. Functions can be composed, as follows.

What happens when we want to simplify the following expression: (λyλx �→ x + y) x. 5) 26 Lambda Calculus, Types, and Functional Programming Note the difference between ++ and +: ++ expresses concatenation of strings; + expresses addition of numbers. 5) will yield λx �→ x+x, the function for adding a number to itself. To see why this is strange, observe that (λyλz �→ z + y) x, where the same function is applied to x, yields λz �→ z +x, the function for adding x to a given number. This is what the result of application should be; the problem with λx �→ x + x is that the argument x gets accidentally captured by the lambda operator λx.

Which stand for arbitrary types, list types [a], and function types a -> b. For example, f :: a -> Bool reads as ‘for all types a, f is an instruction for a function that takes a value of type a and returns a Boolean value’. We will get to know them better as we move along. 13. Types in the lambda calculus and in programming actually have a lot in common with syntactic categories in grammars. For example, basic types can be thought of as corresponding to terminal categories in phrase-structure grammars, like NP for noun phrases.
